Here's my take on a chocolate stout. My chocolate espresso turned out so well I figured modifying it a bit for chocolate would be awesome.

10lbs 2row
2lbs chocolate malt
.5lb caraffa III
.5lb CaraPils
1lb lactose
1oz Warrior 35mins

4oz bakers chocolate at the end of the boil
4oz semi-sweet chocolate in the secondary

put the chocolate in the secondary and then racked on top of it. Kind of swirled it a bit to.

no, it was the powdered form of hershey's you get at the grocery store. Like the baker's chocolate.

Lessons Learned:

I made a (second stout) where I added 50% more chocolate malt and reduced the roasted barly by 25%.

I just kegged it the other day. I'm not really sure if the results are what I wanted.

Will keep you informed...

i had a commercial version of this yesterday (youngs i think)

it was great, but didnt know how this would turn on in the bottle or off of a co2 tap.. it looked like it used a creamer and nitrogen.. and i have neither.

If we wanted to bottle this, how much sugar would you recommend for priming?

Same amount as for any 5 gallon batch (3/4 cup dextrose)? I made the Young's clone from AHS a couple months ago and it is just now starting to taste VERY good. I had tried it a week after bottling, about 3 weeks later, and then a couple weeks ago. The first 2 times it did not taste very good at all. Definitely want to age this puppy for a while to get the flavors to meld well, but it is coming along perfectly. I hope by late fall it will be in it's prime and ready for the nice colder weather.
